A BBC news report (https://www.bbc.com/news/world-us-canada-58409267) includes images that provide a graphic picture of the damage caused by Hurricane Ida that left huge areas of the southeastern and eastern United States devastated.

Satellite images taken by Maxar on Tuesday show extensive damage along the Gulf Coast and southern Louisiana following the fifth strongest storm to ever hit the US mainland.

Coastal areas have been particularly badly hit, including the small towns of Jean Lafitte, Barataria, and lower Lafitte.
